Nature’s Path Cereals

Did you know that a study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition unveiled that men and women who eat at least one serving of whole grains each day weigh less and have slimmer waistlines?  In this day and age, I know that this is something we all strive for.  Nature’s Path cereals definitely fit this bill since they are loaded with whole grains, as well as fiber.  Their cereals include:

  • Nature’s Path Optimum Slim – 18g whole grains, 9g fiber
  • FlaxPlus Pumpkin Raisin Crunch – 19g whole grains, 9g fiber
  • FlaxPlus Red Berry Crunch – 22g whole grains, 5g fiber
  • Pumpkin FlaxPlus Granola – 31g whole grains, 5g fiber
  • Sunflower AgavePlus Granola – 33g whole grains, 4g fiber

All Nature’s Path products are certified organic, which means they contain nothing artificial and no chemical pesticides or herbicides are used.  I’ll be honest, my kids like the sugary cereals (who doesn’t?), but my kids eat this cereal too without me having to make them.  They often ask for the FlaxPlus Red Berry Crunch (which happens to be an excellent source of Omega-3).  It is made with organic flax seeds, strawberries, raspberries, and oats.  The FlaxPlus Granola is great for any of the granola lovers out there.  It has a little kick to it but is definitely good.  The Nature’s Path Optimum Slim cereal happens to be my favorite.  What surprised me most about it was that it is sweet.  They sweetened this cereal with molasses which for me makes it extra yummy.

If you are looking for a great alternative to the sugary cereals you find in your local grocery store, I highly recommend checking out the Nature’s Path products.  There is definitely something here for everyone.
